Who needs Tebow when you've got Kerley?

It's probably not often that I'll agree on things with Antonio Cromartie, but he appears to have shared the same thought as me regarding Tim Tebow being traded to the New York Jets. Cromartie, who does not appear to be a fan of the trade, has let loose with a torrent of tweets letting the world know how he feels. One of his many thoughts from today:

"We don't need Tebow. We sell out every home game let him go to Jacksonville Tampa or Miami. Our wildcat offense can b ran by J. Kerley"

To be fair, he also mentioned that Joe McKnight could also serve in that function, but for the most part (minus the shaky grammar) he echoed exactly my initial thoughts on the trade. Why bring in an expensive and distracting option to run your wildcat package when you've got one of the most electrifying athletes around already on your roster? Kerley, who you'll remember completely confounded the BYU defense when he lined up at QB in '08 and who tossed the insult-to-injury TD pass against Utah in 2010, is a much cheaper and clandestine option who can also return kickoffs and punts as well as serve as a reliable pass-catcher in your regular offensive scheme.

This may be moot, though, as this proposed trade may end up not even happening at all. I sure hope it does fall through, because LaDainian Tomlinson and Kerley already have enough nonsense to deal with in the Jets locker room without this over hyped clown showing up.
